Travelling EduKits

Growing Up in Ancient Egypt EduKit showing various layers

Relax in the comfort of the classroom and have ROM collections and expertise come to you. EduKits are sturdy cases packed with ROM objects and lesson materials that can be rented by schools, libraries, museums (or any other educational group) for a hands-on component to student learning. Imagine getting your own ROM expert with a lesson plan in a suitcase! The ROM’s expertise and touchable objects are the foundation of each kit – making EduKit experiences unique, engaging, memorable and fun!

EduKits cover a variety of topics for various grade levels and are linked to the Ontario K-12 curriculum. Each EduKit contains objects (specimens, models, reproductions and/or accessioned artifacts), activity centres for student inquiry, and teacher's notes for educators. See below for rental details.
